Intensive Care Unit

Located on the 4th floor, our Critical Care units include two nursing units.

Our 10-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is staffed to provide a critical level of care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The nurse-patient ratio is individualized based on severity of illness or injury. Our staff of highly-skilled nurses provide constant, compassionate care during this critical stage of the patient’s illness.

 

Our 12-bed Stepdown Unit (SDU) located next to the ICU is staffed to provide a slightly lower level of care for patients who are more stabilized, but need closer observation for a period of time set by the physician.  The nurse-patio ratio is based on severity of illness at a lower level than the ICU.  Stepdown Unit staff consist of highly-skilled registered nurses and assistants who provide individualized care.

 

Both units maintain capability to manage critical care patients with state of the art cardiac monitoring systems.
